Food-grade Diatomaceous Earth (DE), also known as Kieselguhr commonly called a diatomite is a mineral of biogenic origin formed during the later Tertiary Period between 5 to 20 million years ago. During the Tertiary Period these diatomite/diatoms settled on the floors of freshwater lakes forming enormous bodies of microscopic silica structures. Diatoms are single living cell microorganisms and form the base of the food chain. As Diatoms die, they leave behind tiny silica shells. DE is widely available, easy and inexpensive to mine, therefore requires minimal energy, and raw material resource consumption.
